The Emperor and His Empress

The Emperor was a product of my frustration while waiting the bus to go home one day. I just wanted to draw a fierce looking male, but it went on and on and on. And thus... somehow, The Emperor was born.

His Empress born when I was bored during work, and need some distraction. Both of them abusing my pen it almost dried out! :|

So, I've been practicing manual sketching, and experimenting with some style.. and somehow, I think I've finally found one that I could proudly call my own. Though it won't stop me to continue practicing and developing and taste another style.

Edit and put them together in Photoshop CS3.
At first I wanted to color them or to put them in interesting layout. However, I think the simplest one is (if it's not always) the best.

But, really.. nothing beats manual drawing for me.
The emotion, man! The emotion! XDD
